Sen. Paul: US Churches Should Challenge the IRS

Ad Feedback

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said churches in America should challenge the Internal Revenue Service by speaking boldly from the pulpit, without worrying about the consequences.

In an exclusive interview with CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody, Sen. Paul issued a challenge to pastors.

"What I would say to the churches is be bold and challenge them and say, 'In our church we're still going to discuss good and evil and what we think of it and so be it if the government wants to come and challenge us because if we don't stand up and try and protect our God-given rights, they're going to be taken from us.'"

Many pastors are reluctant to speak out on political issues because they fear being audited or fined by the IRS.
